About this Event

As part of the QMUL Institute for Humanities and Social Sciences series on ‘aftermaths’, this event will bring together five of the contributors to Empire’s Endgame, a bold new intervention in debates around racial capitalism and political crisis in Britain. Moving us away from a focus on individual behaviours in explaining racism, Empire’s Endgame traces the ways in which the legacies of empire—reshaped by global capitalism, the digital environment and the instability of the nation-state—produce race and racism in contemporary Britain.
